Hot on the heels of the news that Ricky Gervais’s cringey alter ego David Brent is taking up his guitar for two concerts at Bloomsbury Theatre later this month, The Mighty Boosh reformed for two gigs at Soho Theatre this week.

“I'm high as a kite,” declared Russell Brand breathlessly. “I've drunk a whole lot of caffeinated beverages to get me in the mood.”

The blue bandana-style headwear worn by Prime Minister David Cameron while visiting Amritsar in India might have been a combination of respect for the Golden Temple and a politician’s eye for a photo opportunity. But it seems he inadvertently latched on to a trend for blue hats.

The ethereal surrealism and faux-naivete of the comedian and actress Sara Pascoe conjures up comparisons to Noel Fielding, Josie Long and Russell Brand; in other words she's an acquired taste.

If it really is nature and not nurture then look out for the American teenager Coco Vandeweghe, who makes her Wimbledon bow today against the Greek Eleni Daniilidou. Sport is in her blood: her grandfather played in the NBA, her great uncle played in the NBA, her uncle played in the NBA and has coached in the NBA, her mother swam in the 1976 Olympics and her brother is an international beach volleyball player. Her grandmother, by the way, was a former Miss America, which may or may not add to the equation. US tennis is in the doldrums and Vandeweghe, who at 19 was briefly inside the top 100 earlier this year, is seen by some as a player who could one day bring the good(ish) times back, although with her family background you have to fear she's got involved with the wrong sort of nets.

Yet Frank Zappa, who died of prostate cancer in 1993, would have been 70 next month too. Buried in an unmarked grave, he was clearly against the cult of celebrity. Now, though, London's Roundhouse is to mark the anniversary.
